Sky Bet League Two
Player: Ruel Sotiriou, Leyton Orient
UK Cypŕiot Leyton Orient striker Ruel Sotiriou has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for March.
The 21-year-old’s Orient career has taken off since the arrival of Richie Wellens. Playing from the start and in a central role, his dynamic energy, hunger to shoot and crisp ball-striking contributed to six goals and an assist in eight games.
Leyton Orient manager Wellens said: “Since coming back into the side Ruel has been in fantastic form, and his goal tally speaks for itself.
“He’s been effective, his confidence is high, and I think he’s taken well to what we’re trying to do – and vice versa, I’ve been really happy with his output.”
Sotiriou said: “With the new head coach coming in there’s been a real buzz about the place, and everyone has bought into what we’re trying to do.
“I’ve really wanted a run of games, and getting it, I feel I’ve been able to show what it is I pride myself on, which is scoring goals.
“I’m feeling good, I’m sharp and feeling strong, and with the results we’ve had recently and way we’ve been playing, the confidence around the team keeps growing.”
Ruel Sotiriou also plays for for the Cyprus National U21 side.
Goodman said: “Goals are never more vital than at the business end of the season, and Ruel Sotiriou delivered the goods!
“The Orient youngster bagged goals in six of his team’s eight games during the month of March, literally firing a team in a relegation battle to almost certain safety.”
